The Attorney General knows about all of Brody's bullshit, given the fact that they are going to sign off on his immunity agreement. If he ends up being the President then that is pretty much saying that the AGO is allowing a terrorist to become their boss.

If that happens, the story is completely laughable.

Watching Prisoners Of War , the original Israeli version. So good.
In the original there's two "Brodys" as well as a "tom walker" and the "carrie" is a male Military Psychologist instead of a female intelligence officer.
They're making a Russian version too. I'll watch every version they make.

How does the original hold up to the American? Better/worse?

Not far enough yet to judge.
Seems a little less surreal than the US version, and i like the dynamic of having two released POWs where only they can fully understand what the other is going through.

Not to mention all the gorgeous Israeli women in military uniforms.

I think I agree with the AV Club people that Dana is one of the better child actors I've seen on a drama like this.

I'm not sure if you guys can imagine, but I definitely watched this episode thinking that it was the last of the season and it made the ending that much more insane.

Also, the title of the next episode is definitely called "The Motherfucker with a Turban."

Okay just finished the first season. It's kind of hard to compare since they feel so different even though they have similar plots.
The Israeli version is less of an espionage thriller than it is a psychological drama about how prisoners of war deal with coming home , That kind of stuff is in there but it's more of a secondary plotline and much more downplayed than the American version. It's more about the everyday lives of returned prisoners of war than cloak and dagger stuff.

It's darker , more complex , and more subtle than the US version.
The POW's families and especially Dana(the only character whose name they didn't change) are done much better and come off less annoying in this one.
The two "Carries" Dr. Cohen and Iris are much more secondary characters unlike the US version.
The torture scenes are much more in detail and brutal.
The big twist at the end of the first season is something that happens around the mid season of Homeland. finding out that the "tom walker" survived his beating by the one of other POWs and is now a terrorist

This article describes it perfectly. It's hard to tell which is better because they're both great in different ways.

Thanks for this. I"ll definitely check it out soon. The psychological aspect of it interests me.
